An off-duty MTA worker was shot by a stray bullet while riding the subway Tuesday evening, according to police.
Carlo Thorne, 47, was riding a southbound 3 train when a fight broke out between two groups inside the subway car as it pulled into the station at Rutledge Road and East 98th Street in Brooklyn at approximately 6:20pm, according to cops.
The shooter, identified only as a black male between 16 and 18 years old wearing a blue shirt and dark sweatpants, exited the train car and fired one shot into the crowd from the platform – striking Thorne in the right arm.
The wounded MTA employee was transported to Kings County Hospital where he is expected to survive. He was an unintended target, according to law enforcement sources.
Cops are still looking for the shooter, who fled in an unknown direction.
It’s not clear what sparked the fight, police said.
